On the second day of my October 2006 trip I think I saw more parked trains than trains that were moving. Since I was on a more relaxed schedule on this trip, I decided to follow the former ATSF branch north of Amarillo. This branch line was completed around 1937 and was built to give the Burlington Route competition between Houston and Denver. Today the route is used by southbound trains while the former FW&D and C&S line through Dalhart is used by northbound trains. Most of the trains on the La Junta, CO to Amarillo segment are loaded coal trains moving PRB coal from Wyoming to power plants in Texas. However, there are a few manifest freights each day.

BNSF former Santa Fe Railway depot at Dumas, TX

There is a M/W gang working south of Dumas and two locals have the line tied up north of Dumas. So while there is very little traffic moving I had the chance to take a couple pictures of the Dumas depot. Looks like the west Texas winds have sandblasted all of the paint off the structure.

Engines 3140 and 3005 switching cars at Etter

Engines 3140 and 3005 had been switching the various industries at Etter (Cactus on the map). I am about a mile south of Etter and the units are shoving this cut of cars back onto the wye that connects with the Texas and Northwestern. The headlight in the distance belongs to the HDENBAR (Denver to Barstow manifest).
